Oh what a difference a good phlebotomist makes!

I have to have blood drawn every month for 7 months due to the medication I'm on, and I went in for #5 this morning. Yesterday my boss and I were commenting about our experiences with phlebotomists. I mentioned how I've always been blessed with great ones at the lab I go to and that you hardly feel a pinch and the three vials are filled in no time.

Well, I guess I spoke too soon. This morning I went for my bloodwork and OUCH! There was a new woman there this time and it hurt like crazy from the moment she inserted the needle until at least 20 minutes after I left. I think if I see her next time I walk in the door I'll turn around and come back another day!

The only comforting thing was that I got to swing through the Dunkin' Donuts drive-up on my way out of the parking lot and comforted myself with a poppyseed bagel with light cream cheese and Tropicana orange juice with lots of pulp. Not on the diet, but what else is a girl supposed to do when she's a "starvin' marvin" and has a seriously hurting arm?
